An “uncaring” mum who killed her three-year-old daughter after a sickening campaign of abuse has been jailed for 15 years today.

Kaylee-Jayde Priest was found dead in a flat in Solihull, where she lived with her mum Nicola Priest, in August last year.

Birmingham Crown Court heard how 23-year-old Priest called her daughter a ‘little b***’ and a ‘rat’, and days earlier had threatened to kill the youngster.

Priest had also sent her boyfriend Callum Redfern, 22, a message saying she had smacked the tot for ‘sh***ing in her nappy’.

Redfern was locked up for 14 years for his part in the youngster’s death.

Priest was given 15 years for manslaughter and a concurrent term of three years for a child cruelty charge.

Jurors broke down in tears as they heard of the 68 injuries pathologists found on little Kaylee’s body, including broken ribs, lower leg fractures and a broken sternum.

The injuries were inflicted on August 8 last year while Redfern visited Priest with a friend.

He left the property that evening and when Priest checked on her daughter in the morning she found her ‘stiff’ and not moving.

Experts told Birmingham Crown Court that the tot likely died around midnight but could have been saved if she received immediate medical attention.

She died from serious chest and abdominal injuries after a ‘ferocious assault’ at her home in Solihull, where the tot lived in a bedroom without a lightbulb, curtains and a proper carpet.

By the time the mum rang 999, Kaylee had already been dead for several hours.
